What books do I want to read during May for Wyrd and Wonder? Let’s just acknowledge that I am a notorious mood reader who can not stick to any TBR for more than a day or two. Take this list with a grain of salt. But these are fantasy books that have caught my eye lately.
I’m most of the way through the audiobook of A Little Night Magic. I picked it because it is about a waitress at a waffle restaurant who discovers that she has magic. I’m always on the lookout for books that also fit into Foodies Read.
I’ve been meaning to read Certain Dark Things for a while. It is about vampires in future Mexico City. I’ve DNFed other of this author’s books in the past but so far I’m liking this one.
Witch Please is going to be my second audiobook. I have it checked out from the library. It fits my witchy, foodie theme.
“Danica Waterhouse is a fully modern witch—daughter, granddaughter, cousin, and co-owner of the Fix-It Witches, a magical tech repair shop. After a messy breakup that included way too much family “feedback,” Danica made a pact with her cousin: they’ll keep their hearts protected and have fun, without involving any of the overly opinionated Waterhouse matriarchs. Danica is more than a little exhausted navigating a long-standing family feud where Gram thinks the only good mundane is a dead one and Danica’s mother weaves floral crowns for anyone who crosses her path.
Three blocks down from the Fix-It Witches, Titus Winnaker, owner of Sugar Daddy’s bakery, has family trouble of his own. After a tragic loss, all he’s got left is his sister, the bakery, and a lifetime of terrible luck in love. Sure, business is sweet, but he can’t seem to shake the romantic curse that’s left him past thirty and still a virgin. He’s decided he’s doomed to be forever alone.
Until he meets Danica Waterhouse. The sparks are instant, their attraction irresistible. For him, she’s the one. To her, he’s a firebomb thrown in the middle of a family war. Can a modern witch find love with an old-fashioned mundane who refuses to settle for anything less than forever?”
I’ve got a lot of other fantasy books on hold at the library but I’m not sure what will be here in May. I appear to be down the list on a lot of them. I’m sure I won’t run out of options though. I have another Melissa McShane series to start. It is about a magic thief who becomes a ruler. I have two other witchy ebooks out from the library. I’m not super sure about either of them but I’ll give them a try.
